Anger is NOT a Sin!

I am amazed by the number of people that I encounter who manifest “Anger”

Many Christians have made the right decision. They are going in the right direction but they have gotten stuck in a search of God’s promise.  These are often God ~ fearing, Bible ~ believing people who have settled for something less than what God promised in His Word.  It is virtually impossible to count the number of Christians who are stuck on the right path, but they have settled in their personal place of anger and displeasure. 

 To understand why someone would choose to settle in a place of anger, we need to understand the origination of that powerful emotion.

 Anger is usually the result of some injustice.  It can be as simple as a misunderstanding or as tragic as a broken promise.  It may have come from damage imposed upon a child in his or her innocence.

 Anger can be the result of a perceived fear, real or imaginary. 

For many people anger is thought to be a sin and therefore not to be acknowledged.  It is often repressed, and the person becomes a victim first, he or she is victimized from the event that produced this anger, and secondly, from the anxiety of expressing this feared emotion. 

Please note that anger is not a sin.  It can be a positive motivation or a negative inhibitor.  How we respond to the emotion of anger is our choice and responsibility.

I am aware of that emotion in my life but will continue to choose to respond in a Christ-like way.

In the Bonds of Calvary,

    this is good! Anger is sometimes difficult to control or for some it is difficult to express. Both require God’s wisdom and God’s love.

    while it is healthy to be angry, it can be poison to the heart that harbors it.
